Regarding Masonic Temple Corner Stone. The Masonic Temple was built in 1908. The reinforced concrete construction was innovative for its time. The exterior is covered with uncolored stucco, and the roof, now replaced, was fabricated copper painted red to resemble Spanish tile. The lodge was first granted a charter in 1855.
